Roasted Tomato Soup Recipe

image

Roasted Tomato Soup – Prepared with oven-roasted tomato slices, garlic, spring onions and seasoned with black pepper and basil herb.

Everyone loves a hot bowl of tomato soup especially during winter season. I have altered the recipe a bit to give healthy tomato soup a new flavor which will surely tickle your taste-buds.

Same has been achieved by using spring onions (instead of regular onions) and Italian basil.  I have used dry basil. If you get fresh basil, grind a few leaves along with onion-tomato mixture. Make sure to add dry basil just before serving. You can sprinkle it directly over the soup-bowl or stir it in the pot after turning off the heat.

Pair hot roasted tomato soup with bread-sticks for a light meal.

I baked fresh whole wheat rosemary bread-sticks to go with hot roasted tomato soup.
